DGAC Chile asked Frequentis to supply it with one of the companys future-proof voice communication control systems (VCCS). In order to meet the inherent requirement for high reliability in an ATC switching system, Frequentis delivered its VCS 3020X system. The new equipment went into operation in August 2010.
The VCS 3020X system has built in flexibility that allows it to adapt to future requirements, including support for integration within IP-based environments. It complies in full with EUROCAE WG67 specifications. The system also offers an integrated, but independent, IP A/G and G/G backup communication system as well as certain emergency support functions. Its basic functionality can include all kinds of radio connectivity (analogue, 2Mbit or fully IP).
